OF the various *»ork* that have been published of late year* for the improve ■ 
■till if the English Language, none teem* so well calculated for general utility 
s> the fallowing- Johntan, Lowth,'Elphinstone, Kcnrick,Sherr/lan, Mire*, and 
others, have indeed acquired a lasting fame. But some of their work* are too 
t sfcminoua, and consequently too dear ; tome being very small, necessarily ex- 
clude a V9*t number of words ; and others are too defective cither in design or 
execution. Dr. Kenrick was the first ■who placed figures over thevowets in or- 
der to convey their sounds. Mr. Sheridan not only piacedfigures over the vowels, 
hut more accurately exhibited the sounds of syllables, by spelling them a* they 
art pronovneed. But although hi* Dictionary is, a* Mr. Walker confesses, 
" greatly superior to every other that preceded it," yet it* faults are numerous, 
ami such a* cannot fail qf shocking the dullest English car. 

That a book of this kind should be generally received as faultiest, is not to be 
expected. It is presumed, however, from the grca{ celebrity qf this Dictionary, 
that its defects are neither numerous nor important. Perhaps no part of it to 
store objectionable than the pronunciation o/k.ind,* sky, disguise, ifc. but it is 
supported by the authority of polite usage, and Mr. Walkcr-isnot the only one

Articulation, {extracted from Sheridan.) 

articulation consists in giving every letter in a syllable its due propor- 
rad, accord i*g to the most approved custom of pronouncing it ; and in 
uch a distinction between the syllables of which words are composed, 
»r shall, without difficulty, acknowledge their number, and perceive, 
o which syllable each letter belongs. Where these points are not ob- 
k articulation is proportion ably defective. 

tness of articulation depends, primarily, upon being able to form the 
;ments, or letters, by the organs of speech ; and, in the next place, on 
hing properly the syllables, of which words are composed, from each 
hich can be done only by a just pronunciation. 

lief source of indistinctness is too great a precipitancy of utterance. To 
, the most effectual method will be, to lay aside an hour every day, to 
red in the practioe of reading aloud, in a manner much slower than is 
'. This should be done in the hearing of some person, whose office it 
: to correct the reader, if at any time he should perceive him falling 
Id habit. 

is one cause of indistinct articulation, which operates very generally, 
h arises from the very genius of our tongue ; so that, unless great care 
it is scarcely possible to escape being affected by it. Every word in 
age, composed of more syllables than one, has one syllable accented) 
peculiarly distinguished from the rest ; and if this accented syllable be 
articulated, the word will be sufficiently known, even though the others 
;ed very confusedly. This produces a negligence with regard to the 
itkm of the other syllables, which, though it may not render the sense 
retdestroys all measure and proportion, and, consequently, all har mo- 
very. This fault is so general, that I would recommend it to all who are 
y it, to pronounce the unaccented syllables more full* than is necessary, 
ire cured of ir. 


Of the nature of Accent. 

Accent, in its very nature, implies a comparison with other syllables less for' 
cible ; hence we may conclude, that monosyllables, properly speaking, have no 
accent ; when they are combined with other monosyllables and form a phrase, 
the stress which is laid upon one, in preference to others, is called emphasis. 
As emphasis evidently points out the most significant word in a sentence, so, 
where other reasons do not forbid, the accent always dwells with greatest force 
on that part of the word which, from its importance, the hearer has always the 
greatest occasion to observe ; and this is necessarily the root, or body of the 
word. But as harmony of termination frequently attracts the accent from the 
root to the branches of words, so the first and most natural law of accentuation 
seems to operate less in fixing the stress than any of the other. Our own Saxon 
terminations, indeed, with perfect uniformity, leave the principal part of the 
word in quiet possession of what seems its lawful property ; but Latin and Greek 
terminations assume a right of preserving their original accent, and subject 
many of the words they bestow upon us to their own classical laws. 

Secondary Accent. 

The secondary accent is that stress we may occasionally place upon another 
syllable, besides that wbich has the principal accent, in order to pronounce every 
part of the word more distinctly, forcibly, and harmoniously. Thus this accent 
is on the first syllable of conversation, commendation, &c. 

Of Pronunciation, {extracted from SAeridan.) 

Pronunciation may be considered in a twofold light ; first, with regard t* 
propriety ; secondly, with regard to elegance. With regard to propriety, it is 
necessary' 'bat each word should hare its due accent, and each letter its proper 
sound. This is all that is required in the pronunciation of words separately con- 
sidered. With respect to elegance, beside propriety, proportion of sound also is 
to be taken in ; and this regards the delivery of words asarranged in sentences. 
This is the point which 1 shall now chiefly consider. 

As there has been no method hitherto laid open of attaining even the first 
part, I mean the mere propriety of pronouncing words, it is no wonder that the 
second, or ornamental part, has been entirely neglected. That which gives de- 
light to the ear, in, the utterance of articulate sounds, is founded upon the same 


pie as that which pleases in musical composition— I mean proportion ; and 
as a twofold reference ; to time, and to sound. 

early notions of quantity are all imbibed from the Latin prosody, in which 
frrence between long and short syllables is established by rules that have 
-pence to the ear, the sole competent judge in this case ; insomuch, that 
» are called long, which are the shortest that can be uttered by the organs 
ch ; and others are called short, which take up much longer time in pro- 
ig than the former. The mind thus taking a bias under the prejudice of 
lies, never after arrives at a knowledge of the true nature of quantity ; 
zordingly we find that all attempts hitherto to settle the prosody of our 
ge have been vain and fruitless, 
■eating of the simple elements, or letters, I have shown that some, both 

and consonants, are naturally short ; that is, whose sounds cannot pos- 
? prolonged ; and these are the sounds 6, 1, and 6, of vocal sounds, and 
rare mutes, k, p, t, of the consonants, as in the words beck, lip, cut. 
re shown also, that the sounds of all the other vowels, and of the conso- 
mi- vowels, may be prolonged to what degree we please ; but at the s»mc 
is to be observed, that all these may also be reduced to a short quantity, 
: capable of being uttered in as short a space of time as those which arc 
\y short. So that they who speak of syllables as absolutely and in theirs 
ture long, the common cant of prosodians, speak of a nonentity ; for 

as I have shown, there are syllables absolutely short, which cannot pos- 
• prolonged by any effort of the speaker, yet, it is in his power to shorten 
3D g the others to what degree he pleases, 
'e said, that in pronouncing words, when the accent is on the vowel, the 

is long ; when on the consonant, short ; by which I mean, that the reader 
dwell on the vowel when accented, in order to make it long ; and pass 

over it, giving a smart stroke to the following consonant, when the ae- 
on that But this rule is so far from being attended to, that for the most 
e accented vocal syllables are pronounced in as short a space of time as 
ented consonants ; by which means all proportional quantity in our tongue 
ly destroyed, and the whole appears a rapid gabble of short syllables. 
bviate this, I would recommend it to every one to pay a particular attcn- 
every vocal accented syllable, and to dwell upon it so long as to make it 
the quantity of the short ones. Without this, speech must be deprived 
noothness and harmony. 



Dividing words into syllables is a very different operation, according 
different ends proposed by it. The object of syllabication may be, either t 
bie children to discover the sound of words they are unacquainted with, or tc 
the etymology of a word, or to exhibit the exact pronunciation of it. As tt 
ter is the object in this Dictionary, the words are divided in the notation ac 
ing to Dr. Lowth's rule, viz. " as they are naturally divided in a right pi 
ciation," &c. 

Of the Unaccented Vowels i k u. 

When i ends a syllable after the accent, it is always sounded like e, as s 
ble, glo-ri-fyy a-bil-i-ty, &c- See the words. This sound, although not s< 
as e in me, when pronounced alone, has exactly the same radical tone, 
true pronunciation of the last example (as if written a-bil'e-te) being fami; 
every one, will sufficiently illustrate the sound in question. What has beei 
of i will apply to short y, when terminating a syllable ; as the y in ability, 
when i ends a syllable immediately before the accent, it is sometimes prono 
long, as in vi-tal-i~ty y where the first i is long ; and sometimes short, as 
gest, where the i sounds like e. The sound of the is in this situation, is sc 
•reducible to rule, that none of our writers have attempted it. 

There is an incorrect pronunciation of the letter u when it ends a syllab 
under the accent, which prevails, not only among the vulgar, but is some 
found in better company ; and that is, giving the u an obscure sound, ' 
confounds it with vowels of a very different kind : thus we not unfrequentlj 
singular, regular, and particular, pronounced as if written sing-e-lar, reg- 
and fiar-tik-e-lar ; but nothing tends more to tarnish and vulgarise thepr 
ciation than this short and obscure sound of the unaccented u. It may, hide 
observed, that there is scarcely any thing which more distinguishes pers 
mean and good education than the pronunciation of the unaccented vowels. i 
vowels are under the accent, the prince, and the lowest of the people in th 
tropolis, with very few exceptions, pronounce them in the same manner 
the unaccented vowels in the mouth of the former have a distinct, open, aw 
cine sound, while the latter often totally sink them, or change them into 
other sound. Those, therefore, who wish to pronounce elegantly, must b< 
ticularly attentive to the unaccented vowels, as a neat pronunciation of 
forms one of the greatest beauties of speaking. 


Ir.zrderto attain a knowledge of the marks in this Dictionary, and to acquire a 
right pronunciation of every word in the English Language. 

AS the sounds of the vowels are different in different languages, it would be 
endless to bring parallel sounds from the various languages of Europe ; but, as 
the French is so generally understood, if we can reduce the sounds of the En- 
glish letters to those of the French, we shall render the pronunciation of our lan- 
guage very generally attainable ; and this, it is presumed, will be pretty accu- 
rately accomplished by observing the following directions : 

t hi ci di i ef dgi etch a* dj£ que ell em en o pi kiou arr 


ess ti iou vi dobliou ex ouaY zedd 

The French have nearly all our vowel sounds, and will, therefore, find the pro - 

nidation of them very easy. The only difficulty they will meet with seems to be r, 

vhjch, though demonstrably composed of two successive sounds, has passed for 

\ simple vowel with Mr. Nares, a very competent judge of English pronunciation. 

"he ream is, these two sounds are pronounced so closely together as to require 

mt attention to discover their component parts : this attention Mr. Sheridan 

ver gave, or he would not have told us, that this diphthong is a compound of 

'fullest and slenderest sounds a and e ; the first made by the largest, and the 

by the smallest aperture of the mouth. Now, nothing is more certain than 

inaccuracy of this definition. The third sound of a, which is perfectly equiva- 

to the third sound of o, when combined with the first sound of r, must in- 

ibly form the diphthong boy, joy, fee and not the diphthongal sound of the 

liin idle, and the personal pronoun /; this double sound will, upon close 

iination, be found to be composed of the Italian a in the last syllable o(/ia/ia m 

be first aound of e, pronounced as closely together as possible ; and for the 

ness of this definition, I appeal to every just English car in the kingdom. 

other diphthongal vowel u is composed of the French >', pronounced as 

as possible to their diphthong ou, or the English ec and o, perfectly 

lent to the sound the French would give to the letters you, and which is 

• the sound the English give to the plural of the second personal pronoun* 


The diphthong oi or oy is composed of the German d and i ; thus, toy a: 
boy would sound to a German or Hollander like tdi and bdi. There is no soui 
in the French language equivalent to that of oi or oy in English ; consequent 
Frenchmen must learn the pronunciation of these diphthongs from the mouth 
a native. 

The diphthongs ou and ow, when sounded like o«, are composed of the Fren 
& and the diphthong ou ; and the English sound of thou and now may be express 
to a Frenchman by spelling them thdou and ndou. 

W is no more than the French diphthong ou ; thus Wat is equivalent to Que 
and m to oui. 

F, when it begins a word, is equivalent to the French y and i ; thus you a 
yore sound to a Frenchman as they are written. When not at the beginning 
a word, y has a variety of sounds ; thus, at the end of some words, as glori 
testify, deify i and several other verbs, it has the long sound of i. At the end 
some other words, as variety, ability, nativity ', &c. it has the long sound of 
In other words again, as martyr ', satyr, Sec. it has the short sound of u. Exj 
riencc will best teach the proper mode of pronouncing this letter in its varic 

J, or / consonant, must be pronounced by prefixing d to the French j ; th 
jay, &c. sound to a Frenchman as if spelled dj6, Sec. If any difficulty be found 
forming this combination of sounds, it will be removed by pronouncing the 
cd y and spelling this word edj/, ftcc. 

Ch y in English words not derived from the Greek* Latin or French, is pi 
nounced as if t were prefixed ; thus the sound of chair, cheese, chain, &c. woi 
be understood by a Frenchman if the words were written tchire, tchize, tchin 

Sh in English is expressed by ch in French ; thus shame, share, &c. would 
spelled by a Frenchman chime, chire, &c 

The ringing sound n^, in long, song. Sec. may be perfectly conceived by a puj 
who can pronounce the French word encore, as the first syllable of this word 
exactly correspondent to the sound in those English words. 

But the greatest difficulty every foreigner finds in pronouncing English, is t 
lisping consonant th. This, it may be observed, has, like the other consonan 
a sharp and flat *ound ; sharp as in thin, bath ; flat as in that, with. To acqui 
the true pronunciation of this difficult combination, it may be proper to bej 
with those words where it is initial ; and first, let the pupil protrude his tong 
a little beyond the teeth, and press it between them as if going to bite the tip of i 
while this is doing, if he wishes to pronounce thin, let him hiss as if to sound t 
letter «, and after the hiss, let him draw back his tongue within his teeth, a 



pronounce the preposition in, and thus will the word thin be perfectly pronounced- 
If he woald pronounce that y let him place the tongue between the teeth as before, 
and while he is hissing as to sound the letter z, let him withdraw his tongue into 
hi* north, and immediately pronounce the preposition at. To pronounce this 
combination when final in bath, let him pronounce ba, and protrude the tongue 
btjpnd the teeth, pressing the tongue with them, and hissing as if to sound «. If he 
v«dd pronounce with, let him first form tvi, put the tongue in the same position as 
before, and hiss as if to sound r. It will be proper to make the pupil dwell some- 
time with the tongue beyond the teeth in order to form a habit, and to pronounce 
daily some words out of a Dictionary, Deginning and ending with these letters. 

The English accent is often an insurmountable obstacle to foreigners, as the 
roles for it are so various, and the exceptions so numerous. 

Bat scarcelv any method will be so useful for gaining the English accent as 
die reading of verse. This will naturally lead the ear to the right accentuation ; 
sad though a different position of the accent is frequently to be met with in the 
beginning of a verse, there is a sufficient regularity to render the pronouncing 
of verse a powerful means of obtaining such a distinction of force and feebleness 
as is commonly called the accent : for it may be observed, that a foreigner is no 
kss distinguishable by placing an accent upon certain words to which the Engl i si i 
ere no stress, than by placing the stress upon a wrong syllable. Thus, if a 
fcreigner, when he calls for bread at table, by saying, give me some bread, lays 
a equal stress upon every word, though every word should be pronounced with 
is exact sound, we immediately perceive he is not a native. An Englishman 
•■ild pronounce these four words like two, with the accent on the first syllable 
«f 4e first, and the last syllable of the last, as if written giveme aomebread ; or 
ttbetgrvme sumdred; or more commonly, though vulgarly, gimme wncbrcd.
